Community Specific Science #220

July 05, 2013

This episode was recorded when Science for the People was called Skeptically Speaking.

This week, we’re looking at the ways that science and medicine impact specific communities. We’ll speak to biologist and science educator Danielle N. Lee about the state of science journalism at media sources that serve minority audiences. Microbiologist and public health researcher Rebecca Kreston explains why (and how) some diseases target specific groups. And Dr. Joe Henrich, Canada Research Chair in Culture, Cognition and Coevolution at the University of British Columbia, joins us to discuss his research showing how social science is drawing conclusions from a population of outliers in the Western world.
